i-D magazine: “When I first saw i-D magazine it was 1988, and I read it all the way through to 1998. I’d buy records based on it, read books they reviewed, and study all the fashion shoots. I put the advertisements on my wall. For me it was a one-stop shop for creative inspiration — it was my internet back in the day, my Google. I’d always had the creative urge, but the way my family was situated, that wasn’t an urge you’d follow through with. i-D helped me hone my creativity and pointed me in the right direction. Now and again I look at it, but it’s very different now, and with the internet, it’s not as exciting. But I did find a bunch in a vintage shop in Williamsburg recently, and I spent all day in there reminiscing. I remembered everything.”
